I Love Blue

Blue is my favorite color. I love everything blue. I try to control myself and not make every room in my house blue. Sometimes blue is a popular color for decorating and sometimes it is not. It seems to go in and out of favor. It is the same with quilting fabric. So I try to keep a nice assortment in my studio stash so that I can always find some. I have even filled a big plastic bag with lots of my blue and white fabric with the intention of making a few scrap quilts.
When I saw the newest Karen Combs' fabric collection called Midnight Blue, Riverwoods, I knew I had to have some. I loved every single fabric. And they were perfect for the winter themed project for the The Quilt Life that I had been asked to design.

Here's a little sneak peek. I had a lot of fun doing some embellishing. I found some gorgeous rick rack in an etsy shop. I couched metallic thread to get the feel of snow. Look for the entire project this fall.
Today is also the day I am to choose the winner of Sew Embellished! I put the names in a hat and pulled out the winners name. Congratulations to:
Martina of Basil, Switzerland!!

    Love those wonderful blues and what an interesting sneak peak!

  2. You would love my house, it's mostly blue and white. I don't think it ever goes out of style. And when I travel I can find blue and white pottery or china everywhere.

  3. I've been looking everywhere for these fabrics! Can you please tell me where you purchased them? Thanks. I enjoyed your "sneak peak"; can't wait to see the finished project.

  4. Frances - I hope you come back and read my reply. I cannot e-mail you because you have a no reply blogger signature. The fabrics are just being shipped. I contacted the designer, Karen Combs. Maybe she can tell you where you can purchase them. Tell her I sent you :)
